Default Funny way to clean LARGE hookahs

So cleaning my two KM s (32" and 40") in a sink is pretty obnoxious...pouring water glass by glass down the stem and trying to scrub with a stem brush blah blah blah....

When I was cleaning my beer **** one day I realized that I could use it to clean my KMs....take it up to the shower.....stacked some grommets on the the KM so I could plug in the hose right onto the KM ...have One person hold the funnel up to the shower head to collect the water and you can scrub scrub scurb away with the pipe cleaner brush with lots of water running through ^_^

This is how I clean mine, or with a hose outside.

Try soaking it in a bathtub full of hot water for a while, then run your brush thru it. Works well for me.

When it gets really nasty, I pour some baking soda in followed by some lemon juice. It foams a bit but it does a great job of getting rid of all that nasty tar crap. It also doesn't leave behind any unwanted flavors. Just be sure you rinse well after.

i just saw about using eferdient (the denture cleaning stuff) to clean bases, fill it up and toss in 4-6 tabs in, its gona foam, let it sit a few hours and rinse, no scrubbing needed.

havent tried it yet but those that tried it said it cleaned it perfectly
